Due to adverse atmospheric conditions over the next 24 hours, Grounded Events, the organisers of the Brighton Marathon on Sunday, April 12, have issued the following advice.
Rob Galloway, Medical Director and Tom Scanlon, Head of Public Health in Brighton, are urging runners to proceed with caution as they prepare for Sunday’s event.
“We advise those training for the marathon to be particularly alert to the possible effects of current high levels of air pollution, and to refrain from training outdoors if they experience a cough, sore throat or sore eyes.
“Anyone who is training for the marathon and who already has a respiratory condition, such as asthma, should refrain from training outdoors on Friday when levels are predicted to be highest. Predictions are that the air quality will improve greatly by the weekend.”
